A Little Hatred

By Joe Abercrombie

A Little Hatred follows on from Abercrombie's First Law series which I loved when I started reading them in my late teens.

Despite being a fantasy novel, it's great to see Abercrombie explore issues that feel particularly relevant to the current world we find ourselves in, with sexism and racism being widely explored.

Funny how, whenever men talked about freedom, they never really meant for the women.

The world of A Little Hatred finds itself in the middle of an industrial revolution, with strong echoes of Victorian workhouses, smog laden cities and all the wealth inequality you'd expect to see from a rapidly industrialising society.

Tons of fun to read and well worth picking up if you enjoyed Abercrombie's earlier work.
